The original version of this source can still be downloaded at Beggar's Tomb (once our beloved silver mine). It's somewhat thin; there's an AUD listed at etree, I don't know how good that one is.
The pitch on this source was pretty high. I used CE2K as a "tuning fork", using the information found at http://www.phy.mtu.edu/~suits/notefreqs.html to obtain the frequencies for various notes and then generating the tones in CE2K, while listening to the source in either Winamp or CE Pro. Each track was individually time/pitch stretched to 102.8%. I also performed the following fixes:
- Fixed patch from 4:22-4:44 of Mexicali, unknown AUD. The original patch had not been volume adjusted (too loud), it now is.
- Ditto for two patches in Brown-Eyed Woman, at 17 and 26 seconds.
- Lowered sudden short burst of volume at 34 secs in Samson & Delilah.
SHNs were converted to FLAC, SBEs cleaned up with shntool. Enjoy.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT THIS REFLACED SOURCE
This fileset was originally encoded to FLAC with Replaygain applied in error, and seeded that way. Replaygain does not change the audio data itself, it is simply metadata added to the FLAC shell that instructs a media player such as Winamp or Foobar to adjust playback volume track-by-track based on the overall volume of each track, effectively normalizing the output volume. For live concerts, this can mean sudden rises or drops in volume when tracks change.
Since the actual audio data are not affected, it is possible to correct this by decoding the Replaygain tainted FLACs to .wav, then reencode them to FLAC without Replaygain. The tracks will then play normally. This is what I did to this fileset. It has not been seeded or given a new shnid. If someone else wants to do that, that is entirely their business; I'm neutral in the matter.
I was originally against the idea of circulating these reFLACs in any way, but on further consideration have decided that if SBE fixes find their way into the database and few people kvetch, then there really shouldn't be any problem with these, either.
You can find the original shnid easily enough by searching for the date on etree. At the bottom of the db entry page you will find this comment by me:
"This was inadvertently FLAC encoded with replaygain. If you're playing the FLACs in Winamp you should reFLAC the files without the replaygain option. If you're burning extracted .wavs to CD, these are unaffected and no reFLACing is necessary. I apologize for the error."

P.S. If you do decide to create a new shnid for this source, please delete this text file from the fileset, as it will no longer be relevant. Thank you.

Start of July 1987
Show is certainly a five star performance. Twelve song first set showcasing the best of "In The Dark" and of their else-wise greatest song for song fare.
Two hours forty minutes is a long show for 1987 and you could tell they were probably feeding off of those energetic New Yorkers hoots and hollers.
All the songs are shorter versions than some, In the typical 87' fashion, (Deal only clocks in at 6 minutes, Cassidy at 4:30) but certainly campy mistakes aside, the sound is still polished and the boys are ON FIRE.
The recording is interesting. Like many of the 87' Re-Flacs they have the clarity in the instruments like a SBD, but the background audience noise can be invasive, and the volume seems to waver a bit. Also it sounds like your listening to the recording at a distance. Many of the great March and April 87' shows also have poor SBD quality. Still, the recording in COMPLETELY listen-able and one of the best shows (Dylan-less) of July 1987.
Thanks for this. Don't know how I missed it before!
